‘Managua: Population 401,700’, 
the board reads. It is strange to pass 
it after the heated or perplexed statis- 
tical arguments one has heard in the 
surrounding regions. Local estimates 
of the numbers of dead range from 
ten to twenty thousand, and so many 
bodies are buried in the ruins that 
no-one will ever reach anything like 
and exact figure. In a cafe in Masaya 
we meet a young man who is travel- 
ling from one refugee centre to ano- 
ther, searching for his parents, his 
fiancée and her family. He knows that 
their homes were totally destroyed, 
and has received no response to the 
numerous radio messages he has sent 
out in an attempt to trace them, but 
he struggles to keep up hope, and is 
leaving for Granada, another princi- 
pal refugee centre, in the morning. 
Accurate estimates of the number of 
destitute refugees are equally hard 
to come by. Relief agencies are feed- 
ing and preparing to shelter 3-,000 
‘genuine refugees’, but the numbers 
climb daily, and it seems fairly certain 
that people in the surrounding areas 
who were already living in conditions 
worse than those of the worst refugee 
camp are abandoning their homes 
in the hope of faring better among 
the damnificados. 

Deserted ruin 

At all events, ‘Managua: Population 
401,700’, the one really important 
commercial centre of a desperately 
poor country, is now a deserted ruin. 
Passing the guards at the barbed- 
wire fence by virtue of the magical 
red cross on the front of our jeep, 
we find ourselves among houses that 
lean drunkenly or have fallen into 
heaps of rubble. We wonder whatwas 
the fate of the people in that house 
there, where, the entire lower storey 
was swept out and the roof gable 
now rests on the ground: we are told 
only too clearly what happened tothe 
nuns in the convent across the road, 
where the concrete roof caved in on 
the building, and to the prisoners in 
the collapsed jail, who were kept in 
their cells at gun-point after the first 
shock of the earthquake, and died

Dr. Joanne Zucherman, Chairman of Loyola’s English Department, made 
a mercy trip to Nicaragua. She reports on the destroyed city and its people. 

without exception in the second. Cats 
scuttle away through the rubble at 
the already unfamiliar sound of 
human footsteps, and in the main 
square the clock on the front of the 
cathedral, one of the few possibly 
salvagable buildings in the city, has 
stopped dead at 12.35. 

Deathly stories 

Everyone has a story of la noche 
del terremototo relate. A relief worker 
in the camp where we are staying 
talks about a friend of hers, a doctor, 
who had a woman open on the opera- 
ting table when the lights went out 
and the ceiling began to crumble. 
A refugee stops work on the wooden 
shack he is building to introduce his 
six children and explain how he res- 
cued them from the ruins of his house. 
The baby’s crib was smashed to

possibly salvagable buildings.

match-wood, and she was so hidden 
by the rubble that for some time he 
could not find her, but somehow he 
got her out alive andunharmed. Only 
hours later could he concentrate on 
his own condition enough to realise 
that several of his ribs were crushed 
and a nail was driven right through 
the centre of his foot. 

Desperate plight 

And yet these things, the ruins, the 
stories, even the death-toll, are the 
least immediately important aspects 
uf the situation. What really matters 
is the plight of the refugees, few of 
whom canhopetoreturnto permanent 
housing or employment in the next 
year. And beyond that lies the plight 
of the whole country, always 
desperately poor, subjected in the last 
year to two hurricanes, two volcanic 
eruptions, a drought that wrecked 
much of the harvest, and an interna- 
tional trade situation that totally pre- 
cluded the export of the coffee crop, 
and now robbed of its main commer- 
cial centre and flooded with destitute 
people. The morale of the people is 
incredibly high. Refugees look 
up from the improvised stoves on 
which they are cooking their tiny ra- 
tions of rice and beans to point out 
their children, share a joke or show 
off a rescued pet, and their gentle- 
ness and gaiety are so natural that 
one does not pause until afterwards 
to marvel at their spirit. But contribu- 
tions are urgently needed, to sponsor 
basic health and nutritional programs 
in the refugee camps, as well as 
long-term rehabilitation projects, and 
if they stop coming in as soon as the 
earthquake and its immediate after- 
math have ceased tohave spectacular 
news value, the situation will be des- 


Mother: pointing the 

Margaret Andersen began hercar- 
eer asadutiful academic: the daughter 
of a university rector, she went on to 
puruse literary studies in a world 
still dominated by men and more 
importantly, by male thought patterns. 
She wrote her M.A. and Ph.D. theses 
respectively on what she terms ‘'such 
literary (male) giants as Proust and 
Claudel’’ and scorned female writers 
such as Colette, who seemed “facile 
and therefore popular’’, Somewhere 
along the way she realised what she 
had done to herself and what she might 
in turn do to others, and sought to 
discover for herself another notion 
of what her relationship to literature 
might be. And she set up a course 
on “Women in Modern Society,” of- 
fered at Loyola last year. 

She has now published a paper- 
back volume, Mother was notaperson 
(women were not legally “persons” 
in Canada until 1929), based on her 
experiences in that course and 
purporting to be an “anthology of 
writings by Montreal women’. As 
much as | admire what has gone 

Mazumdar returns 
new production 

Maxim Mazumdar, leading light in 
student theatre at Loyola during 
the first three years of the 1970's, 
will be back on campus this month 
with a selection of play excerpts he 
has been performing in Montreal 
livingrooms with Loyola English lec- 
turer Janet Hickey. 

The pair will appear for two 
nights — Friday, January 26 and 
Saturday, January 27 — in the Vanier 
Auditorium under the sponsorship of 
the English Department. 

Their production The Smallest Unit 
is a Pair has been rated highly by 
those who have seen it in private 
homes; the Loyola appearance is its 
public debut. Dealing with aspects

of love and marriage through the 
ages it is a collection of excerpts from 
Shakespeare, restoration comedy and 
20th century plays. 

It is the second such production 
Maxim Mazumdar and Janet Hickey 
have put together under the director- 
ship of Jordan Deichter since last fall 
when the team began their “salon 
theatre’. They entered the first, By 
Your Leave, a collection of wooings, 
curses and dreams from Shakespeare, 
in the Quebec Drama Festival in No- 
vember, and Janet Hickey walked off

into the creation of this book, and as 
much as | admire the apparent sin- 
cerity of many of the contributors, | 
must still admit to certain reserva- 
tions regarding its success. Dr. Ander- 
sen has tried to do too many difficult 
things, all of which suffer from the 
brevity and superficiality of their 
treatment. And yet | must still wel- 
come Mother was not a person as the 
opening of the debate and hopefully 
the opening of a few minds and con- 

The problem is, of course, that the 
anthology tries to give us a history 
of women’s rights in Montreal, aselec- 
tion of poetry on women by women, 
an argument on abortion and other 
legal forms of oppression, a study of 
sexual stereotypes, andareconsidera- 
tion of certain female authors. This is 
too much for what is, after all, a vol- 
ume produced hastily out of the 
enthusiasm of the moment. We need 
to know much more about all of these 
subjects, and perhaps Mother was not 
a person will have pointed the way 
for us. 

It is not sufficient to point out that 
in children's readers mothers stay in 

the kitchen— we have known that for 
several years now (we ought to have 
known it long before, of course, but 
...); this is where we must start, 
not end. Because the really dangerous 
stereotypes are those we sfill do not 
see (and anyway those pumpkin-pie- 
baking mothers and grandmothers 
must seem hopelessly out of date 
even to the most unliberated of 
modern women, who buys her pies 
at Steinberg’s). 

list of visiting 

Montrealer Frank R. Scott, des- 
cribed as one of the most skilled 
and wittiest Canadian poets, will read 
his work at Loyola on Thursday, Feb- 
ruary |, at 8:00 p.m. in the Vanier 
Auditorium, as part of the continuing 
Loyola poetry reading series. 

Scott, 74 year old former Dean of 
Law at McGill, has been active in 
Canadian poetry since 1925 when he 
became a founding editor of the Mc- 
Gill Fortnightly Review; however it 
was 1945 before he published the 
first of his seven books. He has also 
translated many works by French 
Canadian poets. 

Scott also has a long history of 
involvement in Canadian politics (he 
was a founding member of the 
N.D.P.) and has won considerable 
battles in the Quebec courts. One 
such fight, a defence of the book 
Lady Chatterly’s Lover against an ob- 
scenity charge, caUsed Pierre Trudeau

But let me stop cavilling and admit 

that there are some fine moments. 

The best are those Margaret Andersen 
is personally responsible for. Her fine 
intelligence and sensitive conscious- 
ness are constantly apparent, and 
we know that this work is a product of 
her suffering and learning. She will 
never be able to go back to Paul 
Claudel et |’Allemagne, Isuspect. That 
innocence is totally lost— and a good 
thing, for it is indicative of the kind 
of alienation produced in all of us by 
our unconscious acceptance of behav- 
iour patterns even in the things clos- 
est to us. Her retorts to phallic criti- 
cism, her sensitivity to sexist 
language, makes her adelight to read, 
even if she makes us rethink our most 
banal phrases (Is it sexist to speak of 
the “flowering of female literature?” 
In any case | can never read flower 
images the same way again). Her 
comment that women writers are 
known in France for their “lettres” 
and men for their correspondance” 
has set me thinking, even if | cannot 
yetbe certain that this holds in Eng- 
lish as well. 

| found the section “Letters To. . .’ 
the best in the book, and was especial- 
ly struck by the poignancy and accura- 
cy of Edith Murphy's "Letter to Antoine 
de St. Exupery.” All learning requires 
loss, even of our own memories, and 
some of it is bound to be painful. 
Rarely have | felt this dilemma so 
forcefully presented and yet so forth- 
rightly resolved. But ! am sure that 
all readers will find their own favour- 
ites in this anthology, and perhaps 
women will respond to it in a way for 
different from mine. 

Frank Scott 

to dub him“ Lady Chatterly's Lawyer”. 

His poetry reflects his life's involve- 
ments and attitudes. As Munro Beattie 
wrote of Scott in Literary History of 
Canada: “Wherever his eye has 
lighted upon an injustice or a folly 
he has struck hard. He has the knack 
of saying precisely enough and no 
more and with the most telling use of 
quotations, illustrative anecdote, and 
rhythmic mockery”. 

Loyola students, faculty, staff and outsiders donated a total of 831 pints of 
blood at this year's annual blood drive. Although short by a few pints from 
last year’s 859 pints, the effort was rated as ‘quite satisfactory” by Jim Morgan, 
Chairman of the Commerce Students Association committee, which organized 
the drive. The Red Cross were even happier, for the total was above the 800 
pints they had predicted. Our picture shows Loyola donors in the gym.

Father Regis is presently Vice -Rec- 
tor and professor at the Dominican 
Institute of Theology and Philosophy 
in Ottawa. He has been awarded 
the Order of Canada in recognition 
of his work. 

In recentyears Father Regis, author 
of L’'Opinion selon Aristotle, L Ody- 
ssee de la Connaissance and Epistem- 
ology, has been preoccupied with 
questions raised by natural sciences 
that challenge the traditional concepts 
of man, soul, life and immortality. 
His Loyola lecture will deal with these 
interests and at the same time link 
with some of the concerns of mytho- 
logy expert Joseph Campbell who 
spoke here last October. 

Basket Drive 


Twenty-two underprivileged Mon- 
treal families received Christmas 
hampers this year thanks to the Loyola 
Christmas Basket Drive. 

The student organizers’ all-outfund 
raising effort resulted in donations of 
almost $600.00 cash, plus food and 
clothing from Loyola students, faculty, 
staff, and residents in the area sur- 
rounding the college campus. 

The underprivileged families, from 
all over Montreal, received a turkey 
for Christmas dinner, all the trimmings 
for the meal, canned and staple foods 
and clothing for the children. 



If you play badminton the Athletics 
Department needs you Thursday 
night, January 25th. The event is Loy- 
ola’s Men's and Women's Intramural 
Badminton Tournament; anyone turn- 
ing up at the gymnasium at 8:00 P.M. 
on Thursday can enter. 

Play will last until 11:00 P.M. and 
if you're one of the four men or wo- 
men left at the end you will represent

At home in The Workshop 

Workshop equipment 

A few years ago the word nun, 
to most people, was synonymous with 
a picture of an unworldly ‘habitted’ 
woman shielded from the harshness 
and vulgarity in the world. Times 
have changed and with them the 
image of the nun. The new sisterhood 
has broken with traditions and exposed 
itself to the realities of everyday life 
in an effort to serve ameaningful role 
in the society of the 70's. 

Exemplifying the progressive nun 
of the 70's is Loyola's first female 
chaplain, Sister Clare O'Neill, C.N.D. 
(Congregation de Notre Dame). A 
straightforward woman, whose easy 
nature and enthusiasm have warmed 
many hearts since she arrived on 
campus last fall, she is one half of the 
new two person team directing the 
Campus Ministry house at 3550 Bel- 
more. Her fellow director is co-chap- 
lain Bob Gaudet and the third college 
chaplain is Father Charlie Pottie who 
came to Loyola in 1971. 

On school days the Ministry House 
is filled with young people strumming 
guitars, cooking lunch for each other 
in the downstairs kitchen, studying in 
the dining room and perhaps dis- 
coursing onthe meaning of life. Should 
that particular subject become a dis- 
tressing one, Sister Clare or Father 
Bob will be hauled into the discussion. 

The fact that a troubled student 
feels at ease asking a Catholic nun 
for advise on birth control orabortion 
speaks volumes on the understanding 
and intelligent sympathy for Sister 

Brian McDonough in Workshop living/exhibiting room. 

Loyola’s first woman chaplain 
enters a previously all-male 

Clare. Said she of abortion, ‘I just 
want a chance to present other solu- 
tions to people. | don’t believe | can 
make anyone's final decision for them, 
but someone must combat the easy 
and glib statements of abortionists.” 

Just as she doesn’t try to make deci- 
sions for pecple, she also doesn’t 
preach at them. Ina discussion about 
drugs an uneasy student may attempt 
to avoid her by saying, “Oh, you 
don't understand because you've 
never done it. You don't know what 
it’s like.” She'll reply, ‘‘No, | don’t 
know. So educate me; tell me.”’ She's 
not afraid to ask them questions or to 
learn from the answers. Their respect 
for her is a tangible thing for it can 
be seen and felt. 

It was the student's easy acceptance 
of her that was Sister Clare's only 
shock at Loyola. ‘I just couldn't be- 
lieve how matter-of-factly | was ac- 
cepted,’ she mused. One girl sum- 
med it up bysaying, ‘it’s more natural 
now, more like a family.” 

Being the firstand trying something 
new is becoming a familiar pattern 
for Sister Clare. Just this year she, 
together with seven other sisters of 
her order, moved out of their convent 
and into a three family home, already 
housing two other families, in Ville 
Lasalle. It's a house like any other 
in the area and the eight women rent 
the first floor and basement. “We 
all wanted to live more simply and 
move into a community dimension,” 
she explained. She's not talking about 

The Workshop: coming into focus 

It started quietly in October last 
year and has quickly grown into one 
of the more stimulating spots at Loy- 
ola. Yet it is virtually unknown to 
most of the student populace. 

The place is The Workshop, an 
upper duplex at 7308 Sherbrooke 
West (just west of the Cloran Building), 
that is available to anyone interested 
in photography and silkscreening. 

For Loyola students, faculty or staft 
members, alumni or local residents, 
The Workshop offers two fully equip- 
ped photography darkrooms and ex- 
hibiting space. Silkscreening printing 
facilities are due to be installed in 
the near future. 

The Workshop was conceived as a 
place where an individual whatever 
his degree of involvement in the vis- 
val arts, might pursue his interestand 
at a minimum cost to himself, have 
access to the best possible equipment. 
The Workshop supplies most of the 
chemicals needed. The only items not 
provided are photographic paper and 
film developer: these are left up to 
the photographer’s personal pre- 

Some people regard photography 
as a full-time preoccupation, while 
others approach itas a leisurely pas- 
time; The Workshop tries to accomo- 
date the different approaches by pro- 
viding efficient working conditions. 

doing social work whenshe talks about 
community, but rather she means liv- 
ing as the ordinary citizen lives. 

Their lives in their new home differ 
from those they led in the convent. 
Here they share decision making and 
democratically choose a superior for 
their little group. The heirarchy and 
discipline of the convent are missing, 
so the sisters must discipline them- 
selves. While there is no immutable 
daily religious routine, the liturgy is 
important to all of them and they 
have services in their home about 
three times a week. The rest of the 
time they go to Mass separately, as 
it best fits their schedules. Sister Clare 
often goes to twelve o'clock Mass 
on the Loyola campus. 

This desire tolive among the people 
is the same spirit the founding mem- 
ber of Sister Clare's order possessed. 

Story and photos by Brian McDonough, Workshop Supervisor 

Sister Clare with Chaplain Charlie Pottie. 

There is opportunity for viewing each 
other’s work, discussion, and general 
exchange of points of view. In this 
way, the hobby photographers and the 
“semi-professional’’ have something 
to offer each other. 

Perhaps it is precisely this kind of 
human contact and stimulation which 
is the most rewarding aspect of The 
Workshop. The place seems to have 
taken on the character of those who 
regularly work there. It is above all 
a working area but one that tries to 
maintain a human face. On Friday 
nights, the workers prepare a spag- 
hetti banquet for themselves, quench- 
ing their thirst with beer. 

Major credit for The Workshop goes 
to Charles Gagnon, Loyola's Artist-in- 
Residence, who persuaded the college 
to finance a studio where students 
would be free to experiment with the 
visual arts. Although sponsored by 
Loyola, The Workshop is not affiliated 
with an academic department. 

The Workshop is openon Mondays, 
2:00 P.M. - 10:00 P.M.,and10:00 A.M. 
- 10:00 P.M. on Tuesdays, Wednes- 
days, Thursdays, and Fridays. The silk- 
screening printing facilities add ano- 
ther dimension to the centre and in 
February, photographs by some of the 
regulars will be exhibited in the Vanier 
Library. It is hoped such expansion 
will continue. 

They decided not to design a habit 
for their order, but rather to adopt 
the ordinary female dress of the day. 
During the ensuing decades however, 
that peasant dress had become their 
habit. So, in 1968, when Sister Clare 
and others decided to adopt ordinary 
street dress, they were actually fol- 
lowing an old idea for their order. 
The habit was a valuable protection 
for some, though, she said. ‘‘Mission- 
ary sisters were recognized as such 
and accorded respect because of it."’ 
But many times it was only a hinder- 
ance, making friendship a difficult 
thing. She feels that her “civilian 
clothes” make it easier in the initial 
stages to work with young people. . 
“Once we get to know each other, 
no matter how we're dressed, all 
barriers disappear,” she confided. 
The young people around her agree.
